MARCH 28, 2020 


The Eastern Association Spring Program Meeting was held via Zoom on March 28.  Thirty plus participants attended. Rev. Joe Rowley, President and Rev.  Nichole Havelka, Conference Interim Minister for Search & Call Discernment, hosted the meeting which was held in a Town Hall format.   After Nicole gave an overview of the Search & Call process, role of Search & Call Stewards, and options for shared ministry,  the attendees were then put in a break-out room of their choice  to discuss ways we can work together in shared ministry, options of bi-vocational ministry and keeping connected with those churches searching for a pastor.  Great sharing and dialog by all! 

Date to be determined for our Fall Business Meeting.
